    yeah it had been working great for a while. I emptied it regularly. Then one day I did notice the indicator light went on and it was only about 1/8 full. That's when the trouble started. The light doesn't come on now. Just the unit won't start most of the time and the few times it does come on it shuts off in about 10-25 seconds (sometimes 1/2 a second). I was thinking maybe the humidistat is broken? But I have no idea how to check that.

It is very loud and gives an instruction in the form of E1 then it switches off eventually.

Wild guess, the fan is not working as it should. Too slow or perhaps bad instruction from the "brain". I would guess after some time of "cool down" It will turn on again and do the same thing? Not likely, but the filter needs to be changed, or the coil is
very dirty and cannot "dispose" of the heat fast enough so the compressor works harder, gets too hot and It's overheat switch stops the compressor.

Why is tere no longer water accumulating in bucket like before still alot of humidity

if the unit is more than a few years old there efficency goes way down and they finnaly stop removing water , periodic cleanings of inside coils and such do prolong its life but eventually this does not even work , Time for a new one

Delonghi Dem 10 dehumidifier has stopped working - the 'operational light' turns on, but the fan does not start up so nothing happens.

It could be that the fan / fan motor has seized or jammed. Have a look through the vents and see if you can spin the fan. If not, you will need to strip the machine. Try lubricating the bushes / bearings. Often on these type of units, the vapours dry out the bushes and then they get tight and jam the fan.

I have an whirlpool gold ad50gpusb from canadian tire. The pump will no longer pump via the clear rubber hose and instead the water accumulates in the bucket. Do you know if there is a simple fix to...

For the others who follow

I have the same model, same problem on a 2 year old purchase made in 2014. This unit has a pump (and a hose) to drain the condensate.

The pump light started blinking about a week ago, turning cycling power worked for a while, until pumping stopped altogether.

After investigating:
-the hoses are not blocked but there was some algal growth in the tray which I cleaned
-the pump no longer pumps.
-my favorite parts suppliers and other on-line sources have no record of the model/parts etc.
-Called "whirlpool" consumer line in manual
-Whirlpool has been purchased by Garrison and that company has no parts for this discontinued model but did provide a phone number for the pump 800-799-0991. Unfortunately the cost of this small solenoid pump is $74.

I will drain the condensate via gravity to a floor drain as I don't see spending that much for something that broke so quickly and appeared poorly made..

E1 code for the primary humidity sensor behind right side grill. Unit MUST be unplugged from outlet. Take right side grill out, unplug sensor from wire socket and plug back. If no help, you need new sensor.

Code on Top

I have another of their dehumidifiers, the MDF1-30AE. The first time the P1 came on, the unit stopped, because the filter needed cleaning. Recently P1 came on but the unit didn't turn off, and I had already cleaned the filter, so I phoned Midea customer service at 1-866-646-4332. The man told me P1 means it's in defrost mode and said to just leave it on and the P1 will eventually go away. It's been a while though....

I need a replacement part but i dont know what its called. it's the black thing that floats in the tank. eventually, when it floats high enough, it shuts the dehumidifier off so it wont over flow.

Your close they call it a float. if i had your model # i could show you where to get it.
and give you a part #. hope this was helpfull.

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on

Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:

Part number is 6877A30013L
